Economics course where you would first take an introductory course but after that we have courses in the area of corporate finance corporate finance is really if the individual is working inside the corporation where you are thinking about how does the firm raise capital how is it going to allocate that capital once it is raised what project do you choose do you

Around the area in those cases they may be working in financial analyst position they may be helping with loan portfolios they may be helping with wealth management individuals come and have assets that they want to invest and the students will help them with those allocation decisions or students may place with corporations and within a corporation they may work for

The financing part of the firm they may help the firm decide what funds need to be raised and how those funds are going to be raised they help the corporation decide what projects to select just in a general financial analysis type position but in general we find that our students place very well they enjoy their jobs and and again it’s very important to recognize

That there’s a lot of diversity of what you can do with the finance degree
